ConclusionsThe IACS criteria proved a valid tool for scabies diagnosis. For the purposes of implementation papules and burrows represent truly ‘typical’ scabies lesions.Non-expert examiners are able to diagnose scabies with a high degree of accuracy, demonstrating they could form a key component in population-level control strategies.

Papenfuss, Katja Fischer The parasitic miteSarcoptes scabiei is an economically highly significant parasite of the skin of humans and animals worldwide. In humans, this mite causes a neglected tropical disease (NTD), called scabies. This disease results in major morbidity, disability, stigma and poverty globally and i...

Abstract We investigated the duration of positive microscopic examination in hospitalized patients with confirmed scabies in an acute care hospital. We included hospitalized patients who were diagnosed with scabies between January 2015 and June 2019. From the study period, a total of 31 patients with confirmed scabies were identified. Median age was 75 years. Of a total of 31 patients with confirmed scabies, six were discharged or transferred before getting a negative microscopic test result. Of the remaining 25 patients with negative microscopic test results, the median duration from diagnosis to a negative micro...

Authors: Bonazzetti C, Pagani G, Giacomelli A, Morena V, Bassoli C, Corbellino M, Bestetti G, Galimberti L, Grande R, Antinori S Abstract Crusted scabies is an infrequent disease caused by Sarcoptes scabiei that usually affects patients with underlying medical conditions leading to immunosuppression. Here, we present the case of an 81 years old man, diagnosed with crusted scabies who came to our attention after multiple misdiagnosis and incorrect and potentially detrimental treatment with steroids. He was admitted to our inpatients ward and treated with oral ivermectin plus local permethrin. The hospitalization was...

Abstract INTRODUCTION: Scabies is a contagious parasitic disease, a skin infestation caused by Scaroptes scabieri, tiny mites that burrow under the skin. Outbreaks of scabies can be difficult to control and require the implementation of appropriate control programme. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of the study was to analyze the epidemiology of scabies in north-east Poland, considering socio-economic and selected climatic factors. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The analysis was based on data reports (n=26,362) obtained from the Polish National Health Fund (NFZ) for the period 2007-2014. Monthly climate data were collecte...

by Sajad A. Bhat, Shelley F. Walton, Tomer Ventura, Xiaosong Liu, James S. McCarthy, Stewart T. G. Burgess, Kate E. Mounsey Scabies is a neglected tropical disease of global significance. Our understanding of host-parasite interactions has been limited, particularly in crusted scabies (CS), a severe clinical manifestation involving hyper-infestation ofSarcoptes scabiei mites. Susceptibility to CS may be associated with immunosuppressive conditions but CS has also been seen in cases with no identifiable risk factor or immune deficit. Due to ethical and logistical difficulties with undertaking research on clinical patients ...

Conclusions: Pediculosis and scabies are still current issues in Polish prisons. Convicts returning from passes and new prisoners should be carefully examined and monitored for the presence of S. scabiei var. hominis and P. humanus invasion. Education of prisoners could be a promising tool in prevention of scabies and pediculosis in correctional settings.

ConclusionsThe incidence rate of scabies in LTCHs in South Korea has increased. Regular and enhanced staff training is needed, considering that most hospitals rarely focused on the handling of equipment and furniture used by scabies patients and on educating their healthcare staff. These findings can be used to develop various strategies to reduce the prevalence of scabies.
